    Very nice place. There are a lot of shops "carissimas" of souvenirs, but also has some that are very worthwhile. In a small shop that sells local crafts and the atacama ceramic painted cute!!!! Is a good place to buy the famous stone lapis lazuli. Also has a small shop that sells the ulmo honey delicious. Ask for discounts!! Yes they will. It also has a snack bar with a bartender nice dreads, he talks our Portuguese.

    Los Dominicos is a very interesting location for walks where you can join business with pleasure. There are several shops in the open and also place to eat. There you can buy beautiful jewelry with lapis lazuli stone, originally from Chile, or invest in a piece of cloth woven in baby alpaca, a type of extremely soft wool. Worth the visit!
